Ongoing Opportunity! Help in the Library - Mrs. Lindsay and Mrs. Dailey could use some extra hands re-shelving books (and other small tasks) daily in the Library. They have to re-shelve approximately 50 books every hour! If you are already helping in the classroom, consider coming early/staying late for an hour to led a hand. Any time you can spare is greatly appreciated - even if it is less than an hour. Please sign up here to help in the library!
Victory Elementary Jonah’s Bookshelf - The Victory Elementary School Library now features a red bookshelf in honor of Jonah Diaz, a 1st grade student who passed away from brain cancer in 2015. Since Jonah was an avid reader who would want children to have access to their favorite books, the bookshelf theme is "hot books"- the books that are in highest demand and most checked out. If you are interested in helping with Jonah’s Bookshelf, please consider donating by ordering a hardcover book from the Amazon Wish List (https://amzn.com/w/170UTCWWVTS1G or search “Victory Elementary Jonah’s Bookshelf” in Amazon Wish LIst) or by dropping off an Amazon gift card at the Victory library. Thank you!

Basket Bingo is a pot luck event again this year, so please bring an appetizer or dessert to share. Drinks and all utensils will be provided.
We will be collecting canned tuna or chicken and boxed soup for Backpack Buddies this year. For every 5 ITEMS you bring at check-in, you will receive a ticket for a special drawing for a tote.
